    My Girlies dad is running an XP machine. All was going well but now it has stopped booting into XP (he hasn't added/removed/changed anything). It does the XP is loading splash screen, then the screen goes black & all we see it the mouse cursor. We can move that around the black screen but can't left/right click, use any window keys on the keyboard or anything.

    I'm no that used to XP & failed terribly getting to start in safe mode as I was hoping to lower the screen resolution. He was never given an original XP disk & has no start up floppy either.

    Can anyone shed some light? I'm going to use a floppy based Anti-virus tomorrow but as I cant access the Net from his I'd like to take some alternatives with me.
